Ornamental Christmas Card!

Hello and Happy Saturday to all of you!! 

Hope your weekend is going fantastically so far!! I am off today and have wonderful plans of being very crafty and spending the whole day inside my scraproom working on my Dirty Dozen projects for the Gallery opening on the 15th and also the new Whimsie Doodles releases coming on the same day!!

I have a card to share with you today that I hope I haven't shown you before.  If I have, sorry!  I tried to scan back through my posts and couldn't see that I had posted it yet.

Anyway, I made this card for a challenge over at the Embellish online magazine that is published by my fellow Dirty Dozen Alumni, Ashley Cannon Newell!  What an awesome site for great inspiration and challenges!

This card was created for one of their challenges back in September, but since it is Christmas related, I thought it was the perfect time to share it with you!

I totally forgot to add some twine to this creation which was part of the challenge, so there was never a chance of this card being chosen to win anything!!  LOL!!

I used some great Crate Paper that had a pattern that perfectly fit inside the blank ornament stamp from Verve, called Ornamental Christmas.  And of course I added a pretty red rhinestone to accent the center of it.  The bough was created by stamping the smaller bough branch many times over. Then I added a very thin strip of glue to the branches and sprinkled some glitter to give the effect that the branches had winter snow and ice on them!

The sentiment is from the same Verve stamp set. I really love this set and that it has so many possibilities for Christmas cards!!

Thanks for taking a quick look!  I am going to lock myself into my scraproom until I get all my assignments finished!  It should be a really great DD Gallery this month and wait til you see some of the new Whimsie Doodles images being released. I will start showing you some sneak peeks tomorrow!!

Have a great day and may your bucket overflow with productivity like I need mine to!!
